Living and Dying Well

September 6, 2018 at7pm /U.S. Bank Conference Theater

Ohio State University

We will all die, yet death and the process of dying are taboo topics in our culture. In fact, many people face death without ever fully considering how they would like to die (i.e., in hospice, at home, on pain meds, etc.), or even more importantly how to live in light of their own mortality. How should we live knowing that we will one day die? Can we prepare for death? Are there “ethical” or “unethical” ways to die? What is (or should be) the goal of medicine when treating patients at the end of life? Our goal is to facilitate a bold, candid conversation on life and death that weaves together insights from a diverse set of disciplines – medicine, theology, philosophy, ethics, and law – and viewpoints – secular and Christian.
